Some Guidelines & Advices to Da’wah Workers

Islam is a pleasant religion, accepted by Allah. Its preaching is attracted by the people of all folks of life. Islam preaches softness, kindness, propriety, prudence and accommodating others interests. It advises to call others, who are different in opinions and non-Muslims, with graceful manners.

Islam that guides to adopt softness, eloquent and elegance in preaching others, advises to follow softness and elegance in all matters.

Rasoolullah (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam) says, ”The religion most liked by Allah  is the easy religion that stands in truth forever apart from false.” (Musnad Ahmed -  5/266)

Once Rasoolullah (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, “Religion is easy, and no one overburdens himself in his religion but he will be unable to continue in that way”. “Saheeh Al-Bukhari-39”

Therefore, we should always follow the way of elegance in all our activities, namely, in our Khutba preaching, speeches in the services of Da’wah as Allah likes this good manners of elegance and kindness.

Once Rasoolullah (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam) said to Aiysha (Raliyallahu Anha), “O, Aiysha  “Allah is Kind and He loves kindness in all things.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari - 6024”

Allah ordered Moosa (Alihissalam) and Haroon (Alaihissalam) to go to Firoun, who claimed he was the Creator, and speak to him softly. Thus, Allah says this in al Quran,

“So, (both of you) speak to him in soft words. May be, he accepts the advice or fears (Allah)” (Sura Thaha: 44)

When the prophets were striving in the Da’wah field even though they came across the worst opposing they behaved in good manners and spoke softly. Following incident is witnessing this:

Prophet Ibrahim’s (Alaihissalam) father warned him saying,

 “He said, Are you averse to my gods O Ibrahim? Should you not stop, I will definitely stone you. And leave me for good.”  (Sura Maryam: 47)

He (Ibrahim Alaihis Salaam) said, Peace on you. I shall seek forgiveness for you from my Lord. He has always been gracious to me. (Sura Maryam: 47) Allah has recorded this in the Holy Quran.

Similarly, when the Prophets Nooh,Hooth, Salih and Shuaib (Alaihimussalam) went to their people strived in the work of Da’wah how much they were soft, and elegant in calling them was explained in Soorathul A’raaf.

It was written in many Ahadeeth Books how Prophet Muhammed (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) accommodated the opposing Mushriqs and Munafiqs, he handled them softly and elegantly.

The basics of Hiqmah in the services of Islamic Da’wah means with intelligence and beautiful advices.  Al Quran says as follows:

“Invite (people) to the way of your Lord with wisdom and good counsel.” (Soora An Nahl: 125)

When you are in the field of Da’wah if any opportunities come across for argument Al Quran guides us to undertake it in a very beautiful manner.

“And argue with them in the best of manners. Surely, your Lord knows best the one who deviates from His way, and He knows best the ones who are on the right path...” (Soora An Nahl: 125)

When striving in the field of Da’wah if we lose softness and elegance we will have to even lose our closest people. Allah says the following to the Prophet (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam):

“So, (O Prophet) it is through mercy from Allah that you are gentle to them. Had you been rough and hard-hearted, they would have dispersed from around you. So, pardon them, and seek Forgiveness for them. Consult them in the matter and, once you have taken a decision, place your trust in Allah. Surely, Allah loves those who place their trust in Him.  ’ (Soora Aala Imran: 159)

When elegance is lost, all merits will also be lost. The following prophetic saying is a good example:

Jareer Bin Abdillah (Rariyallahu Anhu) informs as Prophet (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam) narrated,

“Whoever is deprived of kindness is deprived of goodness.’ (Muslim - 2592)                                                                                                                                    

Ulamas are heirs to the Prophets. And, in the activities of Da’wah, especially, during Khutba Speeches you should approach and address the people in the similar way how the prophets approached and addressed in their Da’wah.

When clarifying to the public on the issues of anti-Islamic principles or people of any incorrect dogma in Khutba speeches or any other speeches should choose the best and soft words while following the Islamic discipline.

When clarifying to the public on the issues of anti-Islamic principles or people of any incorrect dogma in Khutba speeches or any other speeches should choose the best and soft words while following prudence and the Islamic discipline. It is the best quality of a truthful propagator, who speaks with good words, protecting his tongue.

When any opinions crop up against the fundamentals of Islam in the social media, clarifications should be given to them patiently and intelligently within the boundaries of Islam. Unscrupulous words or words of hatred humiliating others or other communities should be strictly avoided.

You should also strictly avoid showing your happiness if any person of other religions is in trouble, difficulty or any loss. Islam is guiding to pray for even the enemies for showing the right path. It is important to guide all towards this advice.

Khutba should be done in the usage of simple and easy language so that an ordinary layman could understand. The following Ahadeeth clarifies this:

Anas (Raliyallahu Anhu) informs that Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) narrated, “Make things easy (for people) and do not make things difficult, give glad tidings and do not put people off.”

If all our Da’wah workers follow the above guidelines fruitful results could be achieved. The following matters also have to be taken into consideration:

  1. All our propagation should be done only for the sake of Allah.
  2. We should pray with the true thirst of the restoration and guidance of the people of incorrect opinions.
  3. We should be friendly with them on humanitarian grounds.
  4. Our purpose of speech should be correcting the wrong-doers, but, not pointing out the faults and insulting or warning with hard words.

May Allah Ta’ala bless all of us to understand the truth and follow according to the soft and kind ways with the people in striving in the path of Allah.

The All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama is pleased to release this message of blessings on the day of the 68th Independence Day of our motherland, Sri Lanka.

In order to celebrate completely the achievement of the Independence after 68 years we had to overcome plenty of challenges throughout the history.

One country’s development solely depends on the unity and patriotism of the people. Therefore, it is the duty of every citizen to take initiatives in this opportunity to develop the practical approach to achieve unity and co-existence among communities and religions.

Therefore, All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama wishes that every Sri Lankan citizen who would make effort to bring unity, peace and tolerance through which we could build a peaceful and a prosperous nation.

Media Release - Law, Justice and Punishment

In all cultures and social structures, to ensure the well being of mankind, there is a legal system and a judiciary based on fair and just principles. Especially, Law, Justice and Punishment are needed to uphold the moral values of the society and to nurture the ethical goals.

When individuals violate the rights of the others and norms established for the well being of the society have been infringed, recourse to Law, Justice and Punishment will be warranted. Let us pay attention to what the major religions teach on this subject.   

When we examine the Buddhist scripture, Agganna Suthra of Deega Nikaya, states how anomalous behavior started at the very beginning of human life on the Earth. According to this Suthra, immoral behaviors like theft, falsehood, fraud and sexual misconduct were found in society. Therefore, they wanted to appoint a leader to control this situation. The leader thus appointed was called the ‘King’. When immoral things happened, it was the King who dispensed justice o an equitable manner. It is worthy to note that abstaining from sexual misconduct is a precept in ‘Pancha Sila’.

Gunasena Gamage, in his book “Law and Judicial System In The Old And The Mediaeval Periods” states in page 106 that capital punishment was meted out for rape and sexual misconduct by the Sinhala Kings.     

Law and Punishment in the teachings of Christianity could be found in the Holy Bible. We have quoted a few verses from the Holy Bible particularly regarding the punishment for sexual misconduct. 

“And the man that committeth adultery with another man's wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour's wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death”. (Leviticus 20 : 10)

“If a man be found lying with a woman married to an husband, then they shall both of them die, both the man that lay with the woman, and the woman: so shalt thou put away evil from Israel. If a damsel that is a virgin be betrothed unto an husband, and a man find her in the city, and lie with her; Then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city, and ye shall stone them with stones that they die”. (Deuteronomy 22 : 22 – 24)

The Law and Punishment for sexual misconduct according to Hinduism could be found in ‘Manusmriti’ an important source book in Hinduism.

“A man who is not a Brahmin ought to suffer for adultery” (Manusmriti 8 : 359)

“But if any man through insolence forcibly contaminates a maiden, two of his fingers shall be instantly cut off”  (Manusmriti 8 : 367)

According to the above teachings quoted from other religions, all sexual activities outside the marital bond are not approved and consider it as a serious immoral act. Serious punitive measures have been sanctioned to prevent the humanity and to protect the moral and ethical values of society.  Next let us pay attention to the Islamic teachings.  

The main intention of the Islamic Law is to remove the difficulties the people are facing and to find appropriate solutions to problems and complications faced by them. Sharia is encouraging people to be virtuous and pious and guide mankind to build a close relationship with God. With security, mutual cooperation, with a sense of oneness, with mutual trust, being helpful to each other, promoting goodness, preventing each other from all evil activities detestable to God are indispensable in all societies to ensure human well being. 

Protecting the religion is one of the prominent responsibilities of Sharia. Religion plays a pivotal role in human life. Success here and the hereafter depends on following the teaching of the religion correctly. 

Protection of life is another important aspect of Sharia. None has the right to annoy or destroy other living beings. Islam teaches that the lives of others are non-violable and to damage innocent lives is considered as a major sin.  

Protecting the intellect is another important objective of Sharia. A Muslim must always be decorous and calm. To attain this state it is essential to abstaining from all forms of intoxicants. Intoxicants and other similar materials which confuse intellect and mind are harmful to individual and society.   

Protecting the wealth and property is another important aspect included in Sharia. The sense of personal protection will be accomplished only by protecting the wealth and property which is a result of human labor.  Individual wealth and property has to be protected from theft and coercion, which occupy an important facet of individual security.

Maintaining the lineage in a pure and a faultless manner takes a place of priority in Sharia. All sexual relationships during pre-marital or outside the wedlock is completely taboo and it is considered as an offence needing punishment. The basic unit of human society is the family. Main factor that destroys the institution of family is the sexual misconduct, which destabilizes the entire society.

Sexual activity and reproduction are common to human beings and to the animals. One of the main differences between animals and human beings is that human beings limit sexual activity to marital bond and as a result protecting the purity of lineage and building a responsible relationship. As a result of sexual misconduct this sacred relationship will be destroyed and doors of making human beings on par with animals will be opened.  

Sharia takes a strong stand against pre-marital sex, sex outside the marital bond, prostitution, all forms of sexual misconduct, and factors that encourages to such transgressions.   

Islam requires following criteria to be fulfilled in establishing the guilt in a case of sexual misconduct.

  1. Four persons’ eye witness that they have seen the sexual intercourse of the penetration of male’s sexual organ into female’s sexual organ. There were no information received of any incident in the history of Islam, proving of four persons’ eyewitness and punishing them in accordance with it. If observed of the present increase of sexual misconduct it might be necessary to apply this condition of proving with eyewitnesses in a future era.
  2. If by confession, that is, admitting of one is guilty of sexual misconduct in the courts, without any force, then the court has to give the verdict of punishment. After the confession if the confession is withdrawn in the courts, then, at such situation the verdict of punishment cannot be given by the courts. If an allegation was brought on married female or male of a sexual misconduct and proved in the courts according to the above mentioned term, then, the punishment of stoning to death has to be given according to the Islamic law.
  3. 100 times of whipping is the punishment for unmarried person, provided the proving should comply with the above-mentioned term.

It can be observed very clearly that the purpose of deterrent punishment is to weaken these types of misconducts in the society and encouraging to create a well-mannered and well-cultured society. From the difficult terms mentioned above in proving the allegation, it is obvious that the purpose of the Islamic law is not giving importance for punishing but to save the people from social misconduct.

There have been so many contradicting opinions arising on the verdict of punishment of death penalty given to the Sri Lankan house-maid.

The reason for giving this verdict is, as understood, that this married woman who has sexually misconducted herself has confessed herself as guilty of this crime. At this juncture there are some points to understand:

  1. Mostly due to the lack of knowledge of Arabic Language and the Islamic Law, does the house-maid know what is the offense she had accepted to be guilty of?
  2. Have the Translators informed her of the actual explanation of her offense?
  3. Have Sri Lankan Embassy in KSA taken legal action at the proper time on behalf of the house-maid?
  4. Has the Sri Lanka Foreign Employment Bureau (SLFEB) given proper information about the Rules & Regulations of the countries to the males and females leaving for employment abroad?
  5. When a woman travels a long distance away from home, either her husband or a male who is not permitted to marry her (like father, brother, son, etc.) should accompany her as security. This is known as the “Mahram” in Islamic principle. Furthermore, Islam does not permit the separation of husband and wife for a long period of time. If this principle of Islam had been practiced by all parties concerned, such situations could have been avoided.
  1. The SLFEB should take needful action with the prospective Employer abroad, when females are sent to Middle-East countries for employment, to safeguard the Islamic Principle of “Mahram”, that is, to accompany the husband or a permitted security. The Employment Contract should be organized with this Islamic concept in mind.

Therefore, we believe, instead of criticizing the Islamic Law one should try to understand its core meaning and the purpose of the Law that helps building humanity with a moral etiquette and a well-mannered society. In the mid of the frauds and mal-practices in the society where there is no much change in its moral damages we all have to commit ourselves to stop such situation in the world. We hope this house-maid’s court case will be dealt in a clearer and justifiable manner by the authorities concerned. We expect that the SLFEB would take careful steps and draw up strategies to safeguard the welfare of the employees in a more advanced manner in the legal procedures to stop such unfavorable incidents to happen in future.

False Messages on Halaal Certification allegedly from ‘Mufti M.I.M Rizwe President of ACJU’ are being circulated

This is to inform the general public and Muslims in particular, that false messages using social media, SMS, WhatsApp etc. have been circulated from time to time by some criminal elements with the malicious intention of causing disrepute to the name of popular and prominent consumer products and brands.

Some such false messages alleged that Mufti M I M Rizwe President of All Ceylon Jammiyathul Ulama (ACJU) had declared as non-halal, certain products and brands of consumer goods. This is totally incorrect!

We emphatically state that ACJU dissociates itself with such messages and confirm that ACJU had ceased issuance of Halal compliant certificates since 2013.12.31 and does not circulate such messages.

We strongly believe that the objectives and purpose of such impersonated false messages are to spread disharmony, propagate discord amongst people and more an attempt to discredit and disfranchise popular local brands of consumer products.

We earnestly request all to be cautious and not to believe in such messages that are being circulated from time by such miscreants and mischievous elements.

We also wish to state that we are not liable, under any circumstances, for the contents and consequences of such contents published by imposters referred to above.

Please note that Halal compliance certification in Sri Lanka is now conducted by Halal Accreditation Council (Guarantee) Limited.

For further information related to Halal Certification we kindly request the public to contact the HAC Hotline on 0117 425 225.

Let's Speed up the Masjid Centralized Reliefs

The All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama conveys its whole-hearted gratitude to all those who have been helping the flood victims in the efforts of wiping out their sorrows, while praying for the acceptance and blessings of Allahu Ta'ala.

ln regard the flood victims, ACJU has been providing various guidelines as usual to overcome the adverse situation. During the Executive Committee Meeting held on 15.05.2016, considering the unusual climatic condition prevailing, the ACJU requested the public to plead Allah for forgiveness, offering prayers and supplications and get involved in good deeds in approaching to the close proximity to Allah, the Almighty, while insisting its district and the divisional branches on getting involved in relief works jointly with the Masjids. Accordingly, the ACJU's Ratnapura District Branch took over the relief work in Dehiyowita and Ruwanwella areas, while Kandy District Branch served in Kadugannawa area, Kegalle District Branch served in Aranayake area and Galle District Branch served in Malwana area.

An emergency Executive Committee Meeting was called on Wednesday, 18.05.2016, at the Head Office of the ACJU and decision was taken to split the ACJU employees as teams and sent to different affected areas for emergency relief work with allocation of emergency funds.

The President of the ACJU spoke on SLBC requesting alt to speed up the relief works on 18.05.2016. lt is noteworthy that in collection of Relief Fund the ACJU released another Notice on the same day. However, with several attempts of the ACJU the relief funds were collected island-wide after the Jumu'ah prayers on Friday, 20.05.201-6, and deposited to the ACJU Relief account.

The ACIU invited 19 Muslim Organizations involved in the Social Services on 20,05.2016 to its Head Office, with the intention of making efforts together to see that the help aid could reach the wanted people on time. This gathering was held under the leadership of Ash-sheikh A.C. Agar Mohamed, the Vice President of the ACJU. On that day, it was resolved that a Relief Coordinating Center (RCC) to be established to collect the data of affected people, to make efforts to obtain victims' rights from the Government, to guide with a calling center to connect the victims with the donors or helpers, and decided to work on these types of relief works. According to this resolution under the leadership of the ACJU and the coordination of the other organizations the RCC commenced operation.

The loss of flood disaster is not a minor one. Most of the affected people have lost all their belongings and were desperate. At a situation like this a meeting of Ash-Shaikh Mufti M.l.M Rizwe, the President of the ACJU, with the Masjid Federations in Colombo took place on Friday, 27th May, 2016.

And, it was resolved that the best way of handling such a situation as the ACJU experienced before during the disaster periods of Tsunami, floods, etc. to speed up Masjid centralized relief works.

ln accordance with that until the affected people get resettled gradually to keep helping them the ACJU had given the responsibility to the Masjid Federations in Colombo in the following way listed:

Your Excellency the President,

All Cevlon Jamiyyathul Ulama condemns the Nice City Attack in France

We, All Ceylon Jamiyyathul UIama, the supreme body of Muslim theologians in Sri Lanka, vehemently condemn the Nice City attack on the innocent civilians, killing 84 people, in France on Thursday 14th July, 2016. We convey our condolences to the people of France, especially the family members of the victims and friends.

Violence activities against the innocent civilians contradicts the Principles of Quran and the Traditions of our Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him). There is no justification in lslam for extremism or terrorism. The Holy Quran, states: "Whoever kills a person, it is as though he has killed all mankind. And whoever saves a life, it is as though he had saved all mankind" {Quran,5:32). Moreover, the Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) has said "Allah shows kindness towards those who are kind to one another. Be kind to those who live on this earth, the one' above the skies will be kind to you" (Tirmidhi). 

lslam has given so much importance to human beings that it regards the killing of a single person is like killing the entire humanity, without differentiation based on creed and caste. lts teaching of peace encompasses all humanity. lslam has taught its followers to treat all mankind with mercy, tolerance and justice. lslam sternly condemns all kinds of oppression, violence and terrorism. lt has regarded oppression, mischief and murdering among severest sins and crimes. 

As a nation we had experienced with such incidences and we can realize the distress of your people. The ACJU strongly believes that these types of brutal killings of innocent human beings in any part of the world at any cost.
